6" Purple Passion Hanging Basket

Regular price $19.99


Purple passion plant is unique from other houseplants because its green leaves are covered in soft, purple hairs, giving the plant a purple sheen (hence its other common name: velvet plant). Purple passion plant has an upright habit when it's young but becomes more spreading and vine-like as it matures. This makes it fun in hanging baskets, as well as trained up small trellises.


Our plants come in standard grower pots.

Plant Type


Plant Care

High Light

High light plants require full sunlight to assume their full potential, which means they need at least 6 hours of direct, bright light a day. The brightest spot in your home is the best place to put them.

High Water

These plants require frequent irrigation to achieve the best performance. They need watering 3 to 4 times a week since these plants are typically fast-growing and shallow-rooted.

Plant Care Tips

The velvety leaves of the Purple Passion appear purple beacuse of their dense hairs. Keep this plant in bright indirect light to promote brighter colours, and keep the soil moist, but not soggy. When repotting an existing plant, or planting new propagated cuttings, use our All Purpose Potting Mix.

Plant Origin

Gynura aurantiaca, more commonly known as Purple Passion, is native to the Indonesian island of Java.
